Phosphate test would be good to have, alkalinity and magnesium. Thats all I test for.

The only thing you need are proper water changes which contain all that you need. The one sun coral needs to be fed but I think that's it. Nems can be fed as well.

I would not add anyting to your water that you can't test for. Those chemicals are ok but not needed in my opinion if you are doing proper water changes.

The water change has all the trace elements already in it from the salt. Unless you use a salt mix that doesnt have any elements in it.

What salt do you use?

Well that's exactly what I use too, and ALOT of others. Yep, that salt mix will have all the supplements you need. The chemicals will just be a waste of money in my opinion. Just make sure you do weekly water changes and you should be fine.
